"There is no other anthology available (either in or out of print) that can compete with this one for ease of use and excellence and comprehensiveness of its contents. This is an outstanding book compiled by an excellent and dedicated émigré scholar-teacher with a long experience of teaching students the love of Russian literature and how to read it, and it is highly recommended to any teacher or student looking for a compact, high quality, and inexpensive introduction to the incomparable Golden Age of Russian poetry"
